#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Topples The Wall With Laughter

When Donald Trump gets crazy, Jimmy Kimmel brings the snark. And he brings it down hard on Trump’s latest contortions over the border wall and the intelligence community — whose leaders rebuked the president in Congressional testimony this week.

As Kimmel notes, Trump has contradicted himself in every conceivable way about the wall. But he is especially offended by Trump’s scheme to fund this monstrosity by declaring a “national emergency” and seizing funds from other federal accounts.

“Sometimes I’m amazed he only bankrupted three casinos,” quips the comic.

He also offers a few choice comments about Chris Christie’s new book and how poorly it reflects on the Trump White House.
